UFC 145: Rashad Evans calls Jon Jones a fake and a fraud, 'Bones' tries to keep it classy (Video)

Is it April yet?

UFC 145 is more than two months away, but former training partners and bitter rivals who are set to headline the pay-per-view (PPV) event, Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans, at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Ga., on April 21, 2012, continue to verbally spar prior to the championship clash.

It apparently gets even more dicey when the pair have to share a stage.

This is one must-see exchange that "Suga" attempts to instigate throughout, while "Bones" attempts to remain cool and collected.

Call me crazy, but Evans' incessant poking, as well as admittedly having no respect for Jones as a person, has to be having some sort of impact, whether the Light Heavyweight champion wants to admit it or not. Or, perhaps, he just doesn't realize yet.

That will likely change, for better or worse, as fight night draws closer.

Check out part two of the heated exchange on the set of "SportsNite" after the jump:
